There is a saying in South Dakota, that if you don't like the weather...just wait a day. Sometimes you only have to wait a few hours for the weather to change dramatically around here. But hey, that is probably why not a lot of people desire to live in this area. The weather in this part of the country is an everchanging and uncontrollable force that makes or breaks everyone and everything in its path.
Yesterday, we woke up to a brisk...fourteen degrees below zero.
Frosted ponies anyone???
By last night the temperatues had risen to 28 degrees. Still sound chilly? Well when you consider that the change was almost 40 degrees, to the positive...it felt like a veritable heat wave. It was a short lived deep freeze this time and we did not get nailed as hard as the eastern part of the state this time. Whewwww!! This winter has been a cold bugger. But the next few days are expected to be in the 40's with plenty of sunshine. It is going to feel like spring has arrived.
My Honey is still here....he decided to stay an extra couple of days and that has turned into an extra week. I love it! Today we are headed out to terrorize some prairie dogs with a new rifle...more on that later. ;)
